GRP RESOURCE EDUCATION EVENTS
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle for Garden Improvements this Season!
Cardboard Pathway & Compost Bin Workshop, Wednesday, June 12th, 6-8PM at Recycle Here, 1331 Holden St., south of West Grand Blvd and west of the Lodge, enter Holden off of Trumbull (Lincoln). Meet at the ’3 Bees’ mural.
In partnership with Green Living Science and Recycle Here, Keep Growing Detroit will host cardboard pathway and pallet compost bin building workshops. Materials such as cardboard and pallets can be useful for a variety of garden improvements AND using them means they won’t end up in a landfill! A short session on building and using the materials will be at the beginning of every hour starting at 6PM. Participants who have attended the workshop can pickup up to 3 pallets per garden and up to 10 pieces of cardboard. PALLETS AND CARDBOARD CAN ONLY BE PICKED UP ON THIS DATE. If you are picking up pallets please plan to bring a vehicle that can fit 3 pallets which are approximately 4 foot by 4 foot by 2 foot (about the width and height of 2 twin size mattresses).
DON’T MISS THE 3RD ANNUAL GARDEN RESOURCE PROGRAM SUMMERFEST!
Join us for an evening of fun, food, and dancing with Detroit’s urban agriculture community. The 3rd Annual GRP Summerfest will take place on Tuesday, June 18th on Belle Isle. Check back later for more details.
